Forms and Handouts

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Beginning Fall 2021, the International Office is using new software: International Student Portal. All of the forms on this web page can now be accessed via this portal. Please note that beginning in Spring 2022, all the forms on this web page will be removed and you will continue to access them via the International Student Portal. You can access the International Student Portal through the MyCalStateLA website, under the Academics section.

DocuSign logoIn order to better assist our students during this time of uncertainty, we will now be utilizing DocuSign to streamline your processing time. All Cal State LA students have a DocuSign account. Open your MyCalStateLA account and you will see the DocuSign logo on the left. Please take a look at the tutorial video below. It is fast and easy to use. You can send these documents to any of our advisors. We look forward to receiving your DocuSign documents. View DocuSign video here.
